Cappadocia camel safari is a peaceful ride on the back of a friendly camel to witness the breathtaking views of the valleys.
There are so many ways to travel through the valleys of Cappadocia, it is difficult to find something different. Well here it is! Why not take a camel safari through the well documented valleys, travelling the original way as people would have done thousands of years ago. The ship of the desert is well able to travel the terrain of Goreme and the surrounding landscape. The gentle hypnotic gait of your friendly ride will only add to the experience of this differing landscape, making your tour one more unforgettable journey in Cappadocia.
The camels themselves are raised locally and have interacted with people since they were very young. They are chosen for their friendly, docile nature and introduced to the route at a young age, so that by the time they are mature, they understand fully where they are going and see it as a form of exercise. You will be introduced to your camel by a professional who will teach you how to treat the camel as a pet, forming a bond with you before you head off out to the mystical valleys of Cappadocia. Could there be a more amazing image than heading out to the sunrise or senset on one of these regal creatures?
